News Date:

Last week the Trinity Access Program (http://www.tcd.ie/Trinity_Access/) hosted its annual summer school for 6th class school students from socio-economic groups under-represented in higher education, to support and encourage them to go to university.

KDEG, FAME and CNGL were represented at the summer school through a course on "Editing Wikipedia" devised and presented by Alex O'Connor and Rob Brennan. Twenty students were taken through the hows and whys of Wikipedia resulting in new articles being written on TAP itself, Irish street slang and sheep! Feedback from both the students and course co-coordinator was very positive.
